A Reminder of God's Promises
The mailman brings an Iowa woman an uplifting gift of tokens to remind her of blessings from the Bible.
One day the mailman left me a lumpy manila envelope. Its contents puzzled me at first—until I read the accompanying letter from a special friend.
"This is a 'love kit,'" she explained. "Each of the items enclosed represents a promise God made about blessing your life. I'm sending it to remind you how much He cares about you—and how much I do, too."
I got out my Bible and, one by one, looked up the verses attached to each item:
- A bar of candy—Psalm 34:10
- A shiny dime—Philippians 4:19
- A key chain—Proverbs 3:33
- A packet of colorful tissues—Job 11:16
- A big red eraser—Jeremiah 31:34
- A Band-Aid—Psalm 147:3
- A pretty comb—Matthew 10:30,31
By the time I finished reading about God's abundant provision for my needs, comfort, frogiveness, healing and protection, I was wearing a wide smile. The ordinary but whimsical little trinkets had brightened my day, and browsing through the Bible had refreshed my mood.
In fact, I continued to page through it looking for verses to send to a 17-year-old. I was already planning the "love kit" I'd make for her birthday!
